Hi,
Im a happy in love new owner of a black on black 2016 touring edition since two weeks now.

I'm aware of the 9 speed issues, so I bought the car from a honda dealership with extended drivetrain warranty for 3 years.

Car only has 35 k miles and I bought it for about 30k usd.

I've installed an oem running board last week and did a full compound and ceramic coating treatment (took me a whole day).

Here are some pictures! What should I do next?

Hello!
If it were mine, I'd disable the VCM. There is a company right there in Canada making a good device to do so. I use their device, S-VCM.

Some said you loose 1/2 mile to a mile. It's kinda hard for me to tell for all of the park an eat in the car while idling. The milage gain isn't worth the cost in maintainace if you plan on keeping your vehicle long term.
